Studio Redo - Again

I've done several studio redos over the years. And every time I see these beautiful studios on whip up I think I need to do it again.

One thing I always notice is the neat stacks of fabric beautifully color coordinated. When I first saw this post on how to do it, I thought, "I would never take the time to do that."

I stayed up till one last night folding and ironing my fabric. I condensed four large baskets of fabric to one basket of scraps and these beautiful stacks. Not only does it take up less space and free up my baskets for other stuff, now I won't have to rifle around in wrinkly mounds of cloth with every project. I also have nicely separated spaces for sewing and painting.

I was proud to switch my unfinished projects to a smaller basket, get all my etsy wares and supplies in one place, and still have room to grow. Also, since I'm not doing a lot of painting, i set a couple of small paintings I like around to remind me that I can still do it.

It may not be a super beautiful room, it may not even be a room, but today it's a happy place.
